Are people seriously acting this stupid? (rhetorical question folks)

This weekend in both Maryland and Virginia (last Sunday) a bottle bomb (empty plastic bottles mixed with acid chemicals sometimes includes other materials) was thrown inside theaters during X-Men: Days of Future Past. This is the second weekend in a row that a chemical bottle bomb has gone off!

NBC 4 Washington:

Two plastic "bottle bombs" of acid mixed with metals exploded early Sunday in a crowded Northern Virginia theater complex, making sounds loud enough that patrons thought they were gunshots.

It's reported that 2,000 people had to evacuate the theater in Northern Virginia! Thankfully, no one was hurt in the events! I know there will be some people that will comment "This is stupid" or "Why are people overreacting?" This is a serious issue that can lead you to jail time and yes, someone could've gotten hurt. Bottle bombs can cause blindness, they even have enough force to take off your hand just by mixing seemingly harmless gasses like bleach. There are many dangers surrounding bottle bombs.

At the end of the day I want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable movie experience!

And of course! I hope all of you liked X-Men: Days of Future!

Let me know in the comments section below how the movie was (Please, please, pleeease NO spoilers just yet).
